| Must see!
It's hard to describe just how powerful this film is, it sneaks up on you and punches you in the heart. Lene Marie Fossen was a talented Norwegian photographer who died after fighting anorexia since she was a kid. You can clearly see the person that she was, through her passion and her self reflection in this documentary. The most powerful images and words through the movie are the ones from Lene herself. The filmmakers didn't try to create a story, they let Lene be herself and followed her lead. This is a must see for anyone who has a loved one with an eating disorder, a loved one who has been sick for a long time or simply, if you wish to be a better human being.

Cannot recommend this film enough!
